16 September 2017

This month (september 2017) we hope you will be as inspired by these beautiful patina inspired colors.
Here is this month’s Challenge graphic for your inspiration and if you’d like a little extra assignment, we challenge you to add ‘A QUOTE’ somewhere on your creation!

Heal the world one random act of kindness at a time

For this challenge I wanted to do something completely different.  The graphic of the car reminded me of my random act of kindness this summer.

I wanted the title to be a number plate but the alpha set I used didn't contain numbers so I had to change them digitally (see below).


I began the project with some recycled packaging and a tea spoon.

I built this lovely mixed media project from that, adding a variety of geometric chipboard shapes, resins and metal embellishments and concentrated on 2 colours, using the others as accents, highlights or shadows.


I visited the least loved drawer of peach to brown coloured flowers to select Orange creamsicle florals.

I finished the piece with glimmer and sparkle.


I made the quote up myself.


Thank you for looking, I read all your lovely comments
